A content audit is a process of cataloging and analyzing all of the content on a website, including its performance. Online businesses that publish content and pursue an ongoing content marketing strategy can optimize their benefits by analyzing strengths, weaknesses, and opportunities.
Search Engine Journal contributor Adam Riemer has published an article explaining when a content audit can help in improving SEO performance.
He says, “There is no right or wrong answer for when to do a content audit, as each site is unique, but there are signals it is time to do a content review.
And an annual performance audit doesn’t hurt either.
One thing to be careful of is changing things just because you got a temporary ding, a C-suite executive panics because of seasonality, or there are fluctuations during a search engine update.
Many times, when search engines like Google update, they do a rollback, and good content and pages will come back.
Don’t rely on updates as a sign it’s time to audit your content exclusively.”
Exposure Ninja founder Time Cameron has published a new video ‘What I Learned Auditing 10,354 Websites’ sharing his findings after auditing several websites.

ChatGPT is in the news. This AI-powered chatbot has excellent potential for the search engine optimization process.
Search Engine Journal contributor Brian Fredrick has published an article answering the question ‘Will ChatGPT Take Your Job?’.
He says, “There is no question ChatGPT and similar programs will change how SEO professionals work. But this is search engine optimization – change is the only constant.
And it’s already being employed by some professionals in the industry. From keyword research and strategy to content creation and reporting, ChatGPT shows great potential. But that doesn’t mean it’s coming for your job.
For one thing, no matter how powerful AI-powered programs become, they’ll never be human, which means they’ll never have our creative ability or mental quirks (although ChatGPT is producing some impressive creative work). Current AI systems need both guided training from humans and human input to train on, which limits their knowledge of current and recent events and makes work produced by humans a core part of how they function. It also needs human fact-checkers.”
Sitelinks are the additional links visible below the main URL of the search results on Google.
Search Engine Journal contributor Corey Morris has published an article elaborating on the sitelinks and how you can get them.
He says, “There’s no way to tell Google to show site links or to add or delete them directly.
However, you do have specific ways that you can take action and implement best practices to try to get them and manage them indirectly.
Text Link Sitelinks Best Practices
For organic opportunities, the best practices for getting sitelinks under a text result start with using informative, relevant, and concise page titles and headings on your website.
You’ll also want a site structure that users and bots can efficiently navigate.
That means making sure the important and relevant pages are being linked to from the page. Utilizing breadcrumbs can also help Google understand the site’s structure, the relationship between pages, and the overall hierarchy.”
HubSpot contributor Erica Santiago has published an article featuring survey results on the use of Twitter by marketers in 2023.
She says, “When we asked if marketers plan to move their brand off Twitter in 2023, 66% of respondents said “no.”
Though most respondents said they have no plans to move their brand off the platform, 71% said they plan to spend less time on Twitter.
Will marketers use alternatives to Twitter in 2023?
As Twitter goes through its changes, other platforms like Mastodon, Hive Social, and Cohost have risen in popularity as alternatives to Twitter. With that in mind, we asked marketers if they plan on using other platforms as an alternative to Twitter in 2023.”
When it comes to social media marketing, you need to analyze the performance of your campaigns in relation to the day and time they were posted.
